The Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP), a constituent of the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) at the Center, has demanded the withdrawal of the recently implemented agricultural laws from the central government. The party has said they will reconsider continuing with the NDAt if prompt action is not taken in the matter.
RLP Convenor and Nagaur MP Hanuman Beniwal tweeted this on Monday by addressing Union Home Minister Amit Shah. In it, he has written, “Amit Shah, in view of the feeling of the ongoing farmer agitation in the country, the three bills recently brought related to agriculture should be immediately withdrawn and implement the entire recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission and farmers in Delhi. According to their intention, a suitable place should be given for quick talks in India.
Beniwal further wrote, “Since RLP is the constituent party of NDA, but RLP’s strength is farmers and jawans, so if prompt action is not taken in this matter, then I should reconsider the issue of being NDA’s ally in the interest of farmers.” On the other hand, the Taxi Union has also come out in support of the farmers who have stood in Delhi in protest against the Agricultural Law.
Taxi unions gave a two-day ultimatum to the central government. Taxi unions say that if Delhi’s farmers’ demands were not met, then it was announced that all the transport, cab and taxi unions of Delhi and NCR were opposing the three agricultural laws passed by the current government. Has decided to support the farmers. The letter mentions 10 organizations. Private cabs, taxis, autos and trucks will go on an indefinite strike in NCR. A letter in this regard was issued on behalf of the AISOA Joint Committee.
The letter urges farmers to stick to their demands until the government convenes a special session of Parliament and repeals the three bills.
